TPE, a "perfect tee" material for golf equipment


Golfing provides both pleasure and rewarding health benefits for people who are sedentary or do not enjoy high-intensity activities. According to studies, golf is an example of a quality exercise that can favor people of all ages by promoting endurance, improving coordination, and ensuring cardiovascular health, among other benefits.

Because control and manipulative skills are important in golf, only top-tier equipment is recommended to make the best shots! Advanced materials, such as thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs), have dependably improved the quality, design, and functionality of golf equipment such as clubs, including the putter, pitching wedge and drivers, golf ball retriever, golf club scrubber, golf divider, ball, range finder, and others.

KRAIBURG TPE, a global manufacturer of a wide range of thermoplastic elastomer products and custom solutions for a variety of industries, aces at producing high-quality TPE compounds that deliver the desired performance of sports equipment. 
TPEs have high durability, flexibility, a wide range of hardness, elasticity, and are resistant to UV, temperature, and chemicals.

AD/PA series - Winning feel
The AD/PA series offers a soft-touch, dry haptics surface that is ideal for use in golf equipment handles and seals. The AD/PA series compounds ensure that golf putter or wedge grip, range finder, golf divot remover, and other similar parts are of the highest quality. 

The TPE series also has good adhesion with PA6, PA12, and PA 6.6, as well as up to 50% glass fiber. It also has temperature stability up to 90°C and an optimized properties flow. It is available in both natural and black colors, allowing for a variety of color options based on customer preference. Moreover, its hardness range of 20 Shore A to 80 Shore A allows it to be used in a variety of applications to meet the needs of the customer.

GP/AP series - Above par mechanical properties
Meanwhile, the GP/AP series provides a dry haptics advantage for golf ball retrievers, club head covers, golf tees, and other applicable golf equipment parts.
